The Worst Special Collector's Edition of PEOPLE Ever

4/28/2009 Posted by Mel Got Served , 2 comments
I was at CVS this past weekend and scoping out the magazines at the counter, and right in front of my face was this Special Collector's Edition of People magazine... featuring Dylan and Cole Sprouse of The Suite Life with Zack and Cody and Suite Life on Deck fame. An entire issue only about these 2 homely tweens (sorry Sprouse twins!) As I spied this magazine, I had to say out loud, "Who would buy this crap?" (which elicted a response from the CVS clerk, "Who the hell knows.") What a waste of money and time. Imagine being the journalists who had to cover this crap. And who is buying this? Supposedly tweens and kids, but I have never heard a kid talking about these 2 dorks like they talk about Hannah Montana. Of all the Disney Channel stars to focus on, they chose these two? PEOPLE must be desperate for readers. Leave the teeny boppers on the cover of Tiger Beat, PEOPLE, and stick to the adults.


Secretly, I almost wanted to buy this magazine as a sick joke because it is just such a great conversation starter. Get it framed really nice, hang it on a wall, pass it down to my children and some day their children.

Thanks to Best Week Ever for the link!

How's this for a conversation starter:
Are they really twins anymore seeing one is at least 15 pounds heavier than the other?

You really dislike the twins. But they are good actually.
That Hanna..something, the loud and noisy girl?
